Question about Pioneer DEH-1100 CD Player
And now the old one won't work either
... except it's not the fuses.
We've checked the fuses with an ammeter. We've checked the fuse in the head unit and the one in the fuse board of the car. I assume there's no other one?
The new head unit won't work and neither will the old one, now (although it does occasionally light up for a brief moment and stop working. I have a Pioneer DEH-1100MP and am replacing a factory standard Rover 45 cassette player (which I think was re-installed recently - just bought the car).
Also checked the wires running to and from the unit, which are running at a current both ways of 12.6 or thereabouts. I'm tempted to think there's something wrong with the new head unit but can't figure out why the old one won't work (also just tried replacing fuse on fuse board)
The sellers of the CD player are willing to take it back, but if there's nothing wrong I will have to pay delivery charges to get back something that doesn't work. I'd like to avoid that if possible!
And we did swap the yellow and red wires as we should have done, and then tried the other way after it wouldn't turn on again.

Is it older then a year? warranty or call18004211404. If your fuse is good check these. check you harness for a GOOD ground, check for power with a meter reader. For some reason on these units if your constant 12v and ignition 12v are both not hooked up it wont even do a thing. make sure both are connected. no loose connects?

check that the illum (usually orange)wire is not incorrectly hooked up to acc or perm power as it dims the display for night driving (supposed to be hooked up to your headlight parker switch.)
